One question I have is how well is the PDF file protected from someone
doing a copy/paste from the document?

I know that some of the PDF files I have been given allowed me to
"export" or do something else to save an included image to an image
file.  Same with the text of some.

Now the big thing is what type of software you can get.  I know there
are packages out there that can take a PDF file and convert it back to a
.doc file.  I have seen them, but it was at least a year ago. 

Page/File splitting would work for some of what is needed.  A good PDF
reader/splitter may have some of the things needed.  Listed below is
CutePDF, but I am trying to remember if Foxit PDF software [reader] has
what you might need.  Linux has some good packages, but you need to use

The real key is how much of the original page format you want to keep.

The best option is find the PDF to DOC converters.  With a 200+ page
document, that may be the best solution in the long run.  But splitting
pages and working with only the ones you need can help the process along.

Sometimes I do this by opening the PDF in LO draw and then copying

Sometimes I create the PDF from writer content without the pages from
the 233 page PDF as multiple PDFs. I save the pages of the 233 page
PDF I want as PDFs or just split the 233 page PDF into the pages I
want and then join the PDFs back in the order I want.
What's he talking about? Say I want page 123 of the 233 page PDF
between pages 4 and 5 of my writer document.
Print page 123 to PDF (CutePDF) or split page 123 out (pdftk, pdfSaM).
Print pages 1-4 of your writer doc as PDF
Print page 5 of your writer doc as PDF
Join  the PDFs P1-5, P123, P5

I have a pdf file that is 233 pages long.  Some is native pdf, other
pages are apparently images scanned into the document.

Is there any way I can take pages from the pdf and insert them into
writer ?
